Who are these 'feminists?' It is time for some outrage.

Every self-respecting woman is a feminist.  

But who exactly are these 'feminists' who are always being outraged by bikini'd girls in an advertisement, or a cricketer choosing the wrong time to ask out a woman, or any other minor perceived 'sexism' by a male? 

They are currently being called cowards because they refuse to stand up for female victims of Islam. But just who are they?

I certainly didn't elect them. I've been a feminist even before I knew the word. I was one of those who spoke up for women's rights in the 60s and 70s. Every thinking woman wants equal rights. Every thinking woman is therefore a feminist. 

So who do the media go to when they want a 'feminist' quote or a 'feminist' reaction? It's not me, and whoever they are, it is not representative of me. 

I want a few names. I want to ask them just why they are refusing to be at all outraged at the outrageous things that are happening in the world, while pretending outrage at the miniscule and innocuous.

The Islamic hatred of women became more widely appreciated on New Years Eve day, 2016, when there were mass attacks by 'refugees'  (illegal immigrants, mistakenly welcomed)  on women in Cologne, Germany.  Over the nest few days, slowly, it was reported that several other cities had the same planned attacks by exactly the same sort of people. Other countries, as well.  

There was a cover-up, orders from above.  Even now, I saw a report that videos of the attacks are being systematically wiped from social media.  The authorities appear to be far more concerned with preventing what they refer to as 'Islamophobia' than they are with protecting their own women or even simply reporting the facts.  Problems are never solved if they are not acknowledged as problems.
